The human body is more than 60% water, which is why most philosophers claim that water parks are the most salient metaphor for life. Live a little with today's Groupon to Magic Waters Waterpark in Cherry Valley. Choose between the following options:

Magic Waters attractions thrill adventure seekers and soothe relaxation seekers, and the park's certified lifeguards keep guests safe as they frolic in the water. Soaked screams of delight sound from the Body Slides, where torsos careen down five-story-high tubes at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour, unencumbered by tubes, boards, or the palanquins used for all non-aquatic transportation. The Typhoon Terror sends four tubers at a time hurtling into a whirling cyclone simulation, and Tsunami Bay's 707,000-gallon pool launches endless waves, some higher than six feet. Lazier fun unfolds on Splash Magic River, where a gentle current guides sunbathers down a manmade river 1,200 feet long. Younger guests can climb, slide, and research their Robinson Crusoe remake scripts at the Tiki Island and Little Lagoon water playgrounds.
Magic Waters sports several park eating areas, including an outdoor grill, where cheeseburgers and hot dogs replenish depleted swimmers, and the Thirsty Turtle stand, which beats back waves of heat with smoothies and shaved ice. A beach volleyball court enables sets and spikes with complimentary balls, but guests must provide their own slow-motion high-fives. The park hosts frequent events, including its Sizzlin' Summer Nights, which delight families with activities such as bowling, karaoke, and eating contests each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evening.
Though Magic Waters Waterpark sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Magic Waters Waterpark
Magic Waters' vast expanse of twisting slides, heated wave pools, and colorful attractions accessible to all visitors entertains entire families. While swimmers play, troops of lifeguards with extensive certification and training ensure safety, and mascots stand guard to pose for pictures with children and warn against the dangers of going down a water slide in a full-body costume. After careening through the mysterious darkness of the Abyss tube slide, guests drift down 1,200 feet of lazy river, sun themselves on the shores of the wave pool, or opt for more adrenaline with the Double Dare Drop, which plunges riders 75 feet in seconds. Younger aquanauts puff up their water wings in the interactive complex of Tiki Island or leapfrog over floating lily pads in Little Lagoon.
After exploring the twists and turns of rivers and waterslides, guests refuel with pizza, tacos, burritos, sandwiches or salads at Ocho's Cantina or indulge in cold treats at the Thirsty Turtle. A lineup of upcoming events entertains all ages with activities, while the park stays open until 9 p.m. on Friday Family Fun Nights and Magic Mondays.
